Many students have completed what is referred to as "formal education" and have not been able to qualify for a suitable job, or even have an idea of what their capabilities are for entering the work world. It should be a fact that all students leave high school with a salable skill in order to be an effective member in society. The problem of this study is to determine to what extent the counselor is involved in helping the students attain career information and at what point the students will be initiated to do some career-seeking on their own.

The basic hypotheses of this study are as follows: 1. Career counselors are a much needed part of the school counseling program. 2. The students who received career counseling during their high school years will adjust better in the career world. 3. The students who received counseling will have shown less frustration in adapting to jobs and are happier per se in the career choices because of the wide array of knowledge of many job choices. 4. The students who have received counseling services throughout school will have less difficulty conducting interviews.
